    C is the most basic programming language. if you are interested in the learning programming language. then start with C.

    If you are into web programming then php with mysql is the way to go, it is easy to learn, fast and free, also you can find endless premade free scripts on the web.

    I agreed with you. I have also used this. Otherwise C is the best programming language now it depend on you which one you will choose.

    Post before Windows comed

    I started with BASIC programming lessons (lol) a bit before 1995. Later jumped to
    HTML, having short expierences with various tools till Macromedia DreamWeaver +
    some VBA/JavaScript coding. Pascal/Delphi comed later, but I'd recommend C++
    from a scratch or "for Dummies" books about AJAX, MySQL/PHP, HTML/XHTML.
    After some of these, you'll have clear picture for decision about specialisation.

    Before learn C++ learn C. you wont understand C++ without learning C. because C is basic language. After that you can learn PHP and mysql.

    Yes, you must go for C; its the most primitive language I think but it will really help.

    It really depends on your needs. If you want to develop web applications, I don't think you want to start with C, start with basic HTML, then move forward to PHP, XML, Javascript, CSS, etc..
    But if you want to develop desktop applications, you are better off with .NET languages like VB.net or C#. They let you develop great applications in a short amount of time because they employ RAD.
    Good luck!

    Unless you're going to get into very specific coding (Games/OS/Drivers), C isn't the way to go. PHP is good to start off with.

    People think C is faster, but unless you're good at programming it, or have a very specific task, your code in PHP will out perform C. C will take much longer to program than PHP as well. Unless you're looking at a full time career in programming C isn't the way to go. If you are looking at full time programming, look at something like Python, lots of demand, not many programmers. Everyone learns C, everyone learns Java, few "smaller" companies use it. It simply takes too long to develop, debug and QA. Most companies need results. If they find a choke point in the code, they could rewrite it in C, or go extreme and do assembler.

    I think BASIC is the most basic programming language. My very first programming language was GW BASIC which I studied back in 1996 When I was a teen. It was so easy but you had to write a mile long code to get simple thing done.

    the most basic computer programming language is BASIC. but C is a good one to start with. because, all the languages developed before C were not in use these days.

    For websites, start with HTML and CSS. you can branch off into PHP and the rest when you feel more comfortable. Strict code? as in creating programs etc? I would say C or Python. Although python I would rather use in a linux root environment. (its more fun).

    If you are a complete novice like you say you are, you are going to need to learn a lot about what a code is and why its syntax is structured the way it is. I started off when I was 8, playing in DOS ( LOL my first real PC was a commodore 64 and it had a DOS / DOS like interface). I moved from there to other languages like Pascal, Turbo Pascal, Delphi, Then fell into C, C++ and even did a stint with VB. For me, i would say having the grounding I did learning archaic programs like Pascal, turbo pascal and delphi, helped me to understand what went on with C and C++ etc.

    It all depends on what you are trying to do. It really helps to have an idea of what you want to create first. Desktop programs are very different to web based programs.

    When I started programming it was direct instructions to the chip, then I progressed to a high level language, assembler, from there to Basic, on to C, I have used Euphoria which I really like and is pretty easy to get the hang of and Java and Forth. I now mostly program in Adobe Air for desktop/web integration tools.

    For web based programming I use php, mysql and Javascript with a little html so you can see what I am doing and css for appearance.

    The problem with higher level languages and modern computers is that you will never really learn what happens when you code something and therefore how to optimise your code or fix something which just doesn't work right. That's why we get so much bloat ware and very little tight fast code.

    If the program is slow, get a faster computer...

    The modern answer!

    I run a real time audio program that is pretty amazing. It will handle 72 channels of audio simultaneously given a fast computer. It has the main console and 24 duplicates that can be used for monitoring or other purposes. The program is written in assembly language and weighs in at under 5MB.

    First we have to learn C..C is the basic programming language..If we are strong in that we easily learn the C++,and java..If we know java means we can handle any type of thread..So,First you have to concentrate on C...
    And for designing HTML is the basic language...

    I would advise you to start with VB. Use visual studio to learn by yourself. Then read some books. It will sure help you to keep going.
